I Need Your Help for 3 Projects

I am looking for members of any toxic group, but particularly Transcendental Meditation and abusive Christian Churches, to interview for two upcoming web events and a book that I am writing.

You may specify that your interview be kept anonymous or not, as you choose.

All that's required is a broadband connection, as well as access to a web cam and microphone. The interviews themselves would likely be less than 1/2 hour.

If you have contributions to the following topics, please consider contacting me at or calling me directly at 518.651.6490. We will schedule the interview at your convenience.

You could really make a difference in someone's life by investing just 30 minutes!

Interview Topics

  • What has helped you the most in recovering from toxic-group-related trauma?

  • Have you noticed marked improvement in your life since leaving your toxic group?

  • What problems continue for you — even after leaving your toxic group?

  • Have you noticed — or wondered about — any side-effects from meditation, prayer, or speaking in tongues, such as "spacing out," forgetting what you are talking about in mid-conversation, involuntary meditative states, or the like?

  • Did you have any children practicing meditation in the past? Did they enjoy it? Did you notice any questionable side effects?

  • Do you have strong feelings about teaching meditation or similar practices in schools? Is this a church-and-state issue for you?

I'm sure other topics will come up in our conversation!
